Several potentially dangerous tests (including fCmd-8.1) exist in
the tcl core. These should be disabled for 8.2.3 and searched out
and fixed in 8.3.

The result of running these tests when incorrect file permissions/
user permissions exist can be removal of the root directory or
individual user directories.

Marked knownBug and added a less problematic but similar in
purpose test 8.2 that isn't dangerous.
